Storm Chases and other events we documented in 2007
May 15 2007

The group heads out south to Mendota IL hoping to intercept a developing line of cells leaving a Severe Watch in central IL... but a line of storms fired way off to the east side of IL.  We head back south of the Chi into Indiana where construction and traffic ends this chase early.

A Tornado Watch is issued for most of nw illinois as a line of tornado warned cells develop.  Rich and Liz head out to Stephenson County ahead of a Tornado Warned cell.  No warning is seen though several areas of rotation didnt seem out of the question.

A high risk of severe storms hits Wisconsin.  We head out with the van full and end up almost empty handed with lack of storms and poor internet the best was only when we got back to marengo when lightning struck downtown about a block from us.
